  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS AND WELCOME AGAIN
  • 00:00:14.040 --> 00:00:16.210
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:18.290
  • ON LAST WEEK'S PROGRAM, WE LOOKED AT TWO POWERFUL
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:22.010
  • STRATEGIES THAT SATAN DEPLOYS IN AN EFFORT TO DESTROY
  • 00:00:22.020 --> 00:00:25.270
  • YOUR FAITH, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:29.260
  • AND TODAY, WE'LL LOOK AT THE THIRD TACTIC-AND PERHAPS THE
  • 00:00:29.270 --> 00:00:32.290
  • MOST DANGEROUS ONE-IN SATAN'S THREE-PRONGED PLAN
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:36.220
  • FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:38.090
  • AND THAT IS TO DECEIVE US INTO DISOBEYING GOD.
  • 00:00:38.100 --> 00:00:42.160
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY,
  • 00:00:42.170 --> 00:00:45.110
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT "THE TEMPTATION EQUATION."
  • 00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:48.260
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:48.270 --> 00:00:55.210
  • THE TEMPTATION THAT ASSAULTS YOU.
  • 00:00:56.010 --> 00:00:58.150
  • THE DEPRESSION OR ILLNESS THAT PULLS YOU DOWN.
  • 00:00:58.160 --> 00:01:01.100
  • THE PRIVATE DOUBTS YOU HARBOR ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:04.070
  • THOSE AREN'T JUST NORMAL PARTS OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:06.250
  • THEY'RE WEAPONS IN SATAN'S SINISTER BATTLE AGAINST YOUR
  • 00:01:06.260 --> 00:01:09.120
  • FAITH, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:12.050
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO DO MORE THAN SIMPLY HUNKER DOWN
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:14.260
  • AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN TO DEFLECT SATAN'S ATTACKS.
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:18.000
  • HE INVITES YOU TO JOIN HIM IN THE MARCH AGAINST SATAN AND
  • 00:01:18.010 --> 00:01:20.220
  • HIS KINGDOM OF DARKNESS.
  • 00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:22.130

  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:07.110
  • AFTER SPENDING 69 DAYS TRAPPED IN A CHILEAN
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:11.200
  • MINE, MARIO SEPULVEDA SAID THIS WEEK,
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:15.030
  • SHORTLY AFTER HIS RESCUE, "I'M A CHANGED MAN."
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:19.200
  • HE SAID, "I BURIED 40 YEARS OF MY LIFE DOWN
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:22.220
  • THERE AND I'M GOING TO LIVE A LOT LONGER TO BE A NEW PERSON."
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:27.290
  • DURING THE TIME SEPULVEDA WAS TRAPPED IN THE MINE,
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:30.140
  • HE SAID HE SAW BOTH GOOD AND EVIL AT WORK.
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:34.250
  • QUOTE, "I WAS WITH GOD AND I WAS WITH THE DEVIL.
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:39.040
  • THEY FOUGHT AND GOD WON."
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:43.150
  • YOU KNOW, IT DOESN'T TAKE BEING TRAPPED IN A MINE
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.120
  • FOR 69 DAYS TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE IN A BATTLE,
  • 00:02:46.130 --> 00:02:51.290
  • A BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL.
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:56.040
  • IT IS A BATTLE THAT BEGAN A LONG TIME AGO AND WE AS
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:59.200
  • CHRISTIANS ARE CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE OF THAT
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:02.170
  • BATTLE BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN.
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:05.230
  • UNFORTUNATELY, MOST CHRISTIANS ARE UNAWARE OF
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:09.070
  • THAT BATTLE AND THEY ARE UNAWARE OF THE ADVERSARY
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:13.030
  • AND THE RESULT IS THEY END UP
  • 00:03:13.040 --> 00:03:14.200
  • BECOMING SPIRITUAL ROAD KILL.
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:18.130
  • A GENERATION AGO, DR. D. MARTIN LLOYD JONES
  • 00:03:18.140 --> 00:03:21.050
  • IN HIS BOOK "THE INVISIBLE WAR"
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:22.230
  • WROTE, "ANYONE WHO IS NOT AWARE OF A FIGHT AND A
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:27.070
  • CONFLICT IN A SPIRITUAL SENSE IS IN A DRUGGED AND
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:31.150
  • HAZARDOUS CONDITION."
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:34.160
  • WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT THIS MORNING OR NOT,
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:36.170
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU ARE IN
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:37.280
  • THE MIDDLE OF A BATTLE.
  • 00:03:37.290 --> 00:03:39.160
  • YOU HAVE AN ADVERSARY WHO HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:45.040
  • IF YOU'RE NOT A CHRISTIAN THIS MORNING,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.250
  • SATAN'S PLAN FOR YOU IS TO SO BLIND YOU TO THE
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:50.040
  • GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST THAT YOU WILL NEVER TRUST
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:53.090
  • IN CHRIST BEFORE YOU DIE AND THAT WAY HE CAN HAVE
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:56.130
  • YOUR SOUL IN THE NEXT LIFE FOR ALL ETERNITY.
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:04:00.070
  • BUT IF SATAN CAN'T SUCCEED IN HAVING YOU IN
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:03.150
  • THE NEXT LIFE, HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU
  • 00:04:03.160 --> 00:04:06.020
  • IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.170
  • IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CHRISTIAN HE HASN'T
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.130
  • GIVEN UP ON YOU.
  • 00:04:09.140 --> 00:04:10.240
  • EVEN THOUGH HE CAN'T HAVE YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY,
  • 00:04:10.250 --> 00:04:13.100
  • HE'S GOING TO DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO
  • 00:04:13.110 --> 00:04:15.070
  • DEPRIVE YOU OF EVERY GOOD THING GOD
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:18.020
  • HAS IN STORE FOR YOU.
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.240
  • SPECIFICALLY, HE WANTS TO DEPRIVE YOU OF THE JOY
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:23.100
  • THAT COMES FROM BEING IN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:04:23.110 --> 00:04:26.030
  • HE WANTS TO DENY YOU THE FULFILLMENT THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:29.100
  • EXPERIENCE FROM KNOWING THAT YOU'RE BEING USED BY
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:32.050
  • GOD FOR A GREAT ETERNAL PURPOSE.
  • 00:04:32.060 --> 00:04:35.020
  • HE WANTS TO DENY YOU THE REWARDS THAT CAN BE YOURS
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:38.040
  • FOR ALL ETERNITY BY OBEYING GOD IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:42.190
  • HE WANTS TO DESTROY EVERY GOOD THING GOD HAS
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:46.110
  • PLANNED FOR YOU.
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:47.200
  • AND THAT'S WHY JESUS SAID IN JOHN 10,
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:49.180
  • "SATAN IS A THIEF WHO HAS COME TO KILL AND DESTROY."
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:55.010
  • SATAN HAS A DEVIOUS DESIRE FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:59.150
  • BUT NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE THAT EVIL DESIRE,
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:02.000
  • HE HAS A PLAN TO FULFILL THAT DESIRE,
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:04.250
  • TO DESTROY EVERY GOOD THING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:04.260 --> 00:05:07.050
  • REMEMBER EPHESIANS 6:11?
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:08.170
  • PAUL SAID, "PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD THAT
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:12.150
  • YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL."
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:17.110
  • AND WE SAW THAT WORD SCHEMES,
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:18.290
  • THE GREEK WORD "METHODIA" LITERALLY MEANS A
  • 00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:21.120
  • STRATEGY, A PLAN, A BLUEPRINT IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:25.230
  • RIGHT NOW IN HELL THERE IS A PERSONALIZED PLAN
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:29.180
  • WITH YOUR NAME AT THE TOP OF IT.
  • 00:05:29.190 --> 00:05:31.180
  • IT IS SATAN'S PLAN TO DESTROY EVERY GOOD THING
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:36.040
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:37.270
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO WONDER WHAT THAT PLAN IS.
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:40.010
  • AS WE LOOK THROUGH SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.060
  • WE DISCOVER THAT SATAN REALLY
  • 00:05:41.070 --> 00:05:42.280
  • ISN'T THAT ORIGINAL.
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:44.000
  • HE DOESN'T HAVE TO COME UP WITH UNIQUE PLANS
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:46.060
  • BECAUSE THE OLD ONES WORK VERY WELL.
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:48.220
  • AND LAST WEEK WE STARTED LOOKING AT SATAN'S THREE
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:51.110
  • PRONGED BLUEPRINT FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:05:51.120 --> 00:05:54.090
  • WE LOOKED AT THE FIRST TWO STRATEGIES,
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:56.070
  • AND IF YOU FORGOT WHAT THEY ARE,
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:57.180
  • WRITE THEM DOWN ON YOUR OUTLINE.
  • 00:05:57.190 --> 00:05:59.010
  • STRATEGY NUMBER ONE, SATAN WOULD LOVE TO
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:01.030
  • DISCOURAGE YOU FROM WORSHIPING GOD.
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:03.200
  • IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN THIS MORNING,
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:05.030
  • HE WOULD LOVE TO SEND SO MANY PROBLEMS IN YOUR
  • 00:06:05.040 --> 00:06:07.220
  • LIFE, IN YOUR FAMILY, WITH YOUR FINANCES,
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:10.070
  • WITH YOUR HEALTH, SO MANY PROBLEMS THAT YOU TURN
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:13.030
  • YOUR BACK ON GOD AND SAY,
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.250
  • "IT'S REALLY NOT WORTH FOLLOWING GOD."
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:17.250
  • HE TRIED THAT WITH JOB, IT DIDN'T WORK.
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:19.290
  • THE QUESTION IS, WILL THAT STRATEGY
  • 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:21.230
  • WORK WITH YOU?
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:23.110
  • STRATEGY NUMBER TWO, IF SATAN CAN'T GET YOU TO
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:26.090
  • REJECT GOD OUTRIGHT, HE WOULD LIKE TO DISTRACT
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:29.100
  • YOU FROM SERVING GOD.
  • 00:06:29.110 --> 00:06:31.170
  • THAT IS, GET YOU SO FOCUSED ON THE DETAILS
  • 00:06:31.180 --> 00:06:34.190
  • AND DELIGHTS OF LIVING IN THIS WORLD THAT IT
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:36.280
  • STRANGLES OUT YOUR LOVE AND SERVICE FOR GOD.
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:40.210
  • AND WE SAW IN LUKE 8 LAST TIME
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:42.160
  • HOW SATAN DISTRACTS US.
  • 00:06:42.170 --> 00:06:44.280
  • IT'S THROUGH WORRIES, WHAT IF,
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:47.200
  • WHAT IF, WHAT IF, OR THROUGH MONEY,
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:50.030
  • OR THROUGH THE PLEASURES OF THIS LIFE.
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:53.010
  • HE DISTRACTS US FROM SERVING GOD.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:55.140
  • AND NOW TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT THE THIRD AND
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:57.210
  • THE MOST POWERFUL STRATEGY SATAN HAS
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:07:00.110
  • FOR OUR DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:07:00.120 --> 00:07:01.240
  • AND THAT IS TO DECEIVE YOU INTO DISOBEYING GOD.
  • 00:07:01.250 --> 00:07:05.140
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, TURN TO JAMES CHAPTER 1.
  • 00:07:05.150 --> 00:07:08.120
  • HE WANTS TO DECEIVE YOU INTO DISOBEYING GOD.
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:11.210
  • YOU KNOW, WHAT SATAN'S STRATEGY IS TO DECEIVE
  • 00:07:11.220 --> 00:07:13.250
  • YOU INTO DISOBEDIENCE?
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:15.110
  • LOOK AT JAMES 1:13.
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:17.020
  • JAMES SAID, "LET NO ONE SAY WHEN HE IS TEMPTED,
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:20.140
  • 'I AM BEING TEMPTED BY GOD.' FOR GOD CANNOT BE
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:23.280
  • TEMPTED BY EVIL AND HE HIMSELF DOES NOT TEMPT ANYONE."
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:28.150
  • BUT HERE IT IS, VERSE 14, "BUT EACH ONE IS TEMPTED
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:33.100
  • WHEN HE IS CARRIED AWAY AND ENTICED BY HIS OWN LUST."
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:39.070
  • NOW IN JUST A MINUTE WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:40.170
  • WHAT I CALL THE TEMPTATION EQUATION
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.280
  • THAT'S FOUND IN THIS VERSE.
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:44.170
  • BUT LET ME SAY A WORD ABOUT THAT WORD
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:46.100
  • "TEMPT" IN ITSELF.
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:48.270
  • THAT WORD THAT IS TRANSLATED "TEMPT" IN THE
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:51.170
  • ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS A WORD THAT MEANS TO ENTICE
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:55.120
  • TO DO EVIL WITH THE PROMISE OF GAIN.
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:59.110
  • TO ENTICE TO DO EVIL WITH THE PROMISE OF GAIN.
  • 00:07:59.120 --> 00:08:03.170
  • AND THAT'S WHAT SATAN DOES.
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:06.040
  • HE LURES US INTO DISOBEDIENCE BY DANGLING
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:09.230
  • THE PROVERBIAL CARROT IN FRONT OF US.
  • 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:13.040
  • "DO THIS AND YOUR DEEPEST DESIRES
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:16.080
  • WILL BE SATISFIED."
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:18.130
  • YET WHAT SATAN THE TEMPTER DOESN'T DISCLOSE
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:20.260
  • TO US IS THAT THAT TEMPTATION ACTUALLY WILL
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:24.050
  • NEVER SATISFY US.
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:26.000
  • IN FACT, WHEN WE DISOBEY GOD IT NOT ONLY DOESN'T
  • 00:08:26.010 --> 00:08:29.120
  • SATISFY OUR CRAVINGS, DISOBEDIENCE ACTUALLY
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:33.020
  • INCREASES OUR CRAVINGS UNTIL WE DESTROY
  • 00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:36.290
  • EVERYTHING IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:39.240
  • LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:08:39.250 --> 00:08:40.230
  • SIN DOES NOT SATISFY YOUR CRAVINGS.
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:43.160
  • SIN IN FACT INCREASES YOUR CRAVINGS FOR
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:46.180
  • DISOBEDIENCE UNTIL YOU'RE DESTROYED.
  • 00:08:46.190 --> 00:08:49.200
  • NOW THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT JAMES SAYS HAPPENS
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:51.260
  • WITH SIN IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:51.270 --> 00:08:53.040
  • LOOK AT VERSES 15 AND 16, "THEN WHEN LUST HAS
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:56.070
  • CONCEIVED IT BRINGS BIRTH TO SIN,
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:59.250
  • AND WHEN SIN IS ACCOMPLISHED
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:01.130
  • IT BRINGS FORTH DEATH.
  • 00:09:01.140 --> 00:09:03.070
  • DO NOT BE DECEIVED, MY BELOVED BRETHREN."
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:07.090
  • DISOBEDIENCE ALWAYS LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:12.170
  • DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD ALWAYS RESULTS IN THE DEATH,
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:16.190
  • THE DESTRUCTION, OF EVERYTHING IMPORTANT TO YOU.
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:20.200
  • TO BE CARRIED AWAY AND TO BE ENTICED BY OUR OWN
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:23.110
  • LUST IS TO BE DRAWN TOWARD A TRAP THAT IS
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:26.110
  • BOTH APPEALING BUT IS ALSO LETHAL.
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:30.110
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT THIS TEMPTATION EQUATION
  • 00:09:30.120 --> 00:09:32.200
  • IN DETAIL IN VERSE 14.
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.190
  • JAMES SAYS, "BUT EACH ONE IS TEMPTED WHEN HE IS
  • 00:09:34.200 --> 00:09:37.130
  • CARRIED AWAY AND ENTICED BY HIS OWN LUSTS."
  • 00:09:37.140 --> 00:09:40.200
  • NOW HERE'S THE TEMPTATION EQUATION.
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:43.170
  • WRITE IT DOWN ON YOUR OUTLINE.
  • 00:09:43.180 --> 00:09:45.110
  • THE FIRST FACTOR IN THE TEMPTATION EQUATION IS
  • 00:09:45.120 --> 00:09:49.190
  • CORRUPT DESIRES PLUS, SECOND,
  • 00:09:49.200 --> 00:09:53.000
  • THE RIGHT BAIT PLUS, THIRD,
  • 00:09:53.010 --> 00:09:55.270
  • THE WRONG CHOICE EQUALS SIN.
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:59.000
  • CORRUPT DESIRES PLUS THE RIGHT BAIT PLUS THE WRONG
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:10:03.290
  • CHOICE EQUALS SIN AND DEATH.
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:07.160
  • NOW LET'S LOOK AT EACH OF THOSE FACTORS FOR JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:09.240
  • FIRST OF ALL, THE FIRST FACTOR IN THAT TEMPTATION
  • 00:10:09.250 --> 00:10:12.190
  • EQUATION IS CORRUPT DESIRES.
  • 00:10:12.200 --> 00:10:15.260
  • CORRUPT DESIRES.
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:17.240
  • NOW ALL OF US HAVE WITHIN US CERTAIN DESIRES.
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:21.160
  • WE HAVE A DESIRE FOR FOOD.
  • 00:10:21.170 --> 00:10:24.230
  • WE HAVE THE DESIRE FOR SHELTER.
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:27.070
  • WE HAVE THE DESIRE FOR SEX.
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:29.050
  • WE HAVE THE DESIRE FOR INTIMACY WITH OTHER
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:31.100
  • PEOPLE AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH
  • 00:10:31.110 --> 00:10:33.190
  • ANY OF THOSE DESIRES.
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:35.080
  • THOSE ARE GOD-GIVEN DESIRES.
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:38.120
  • HE PLANTED THOSE DESIRES WITHIN OUR HEART.
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:41.190
  • BUT WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE FIRST COUPLE IS THIS,
  • 00:10:41.200 --> 00:10:44.190
  • SATAN TEMPTED ADAM AND EVE WITH THIS THOUGHT.
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:48.270
  • AND THE THOUGHT WAS THIS, "IF YOU FOLLOW AFTER GOD,
  • 00:10:48.280 --> 00:10:52.130
  • IF YOU FOLLOW HIS PLAN FOR LIVING,
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:54.220
  • YOU WILL BE ROBBED OF SOME WONDERFUL
  • 00:10:54.230 --> 00:10:57.000
  • EXPERIENCE IN LIFE.
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:58.230
  • GOD REALLY DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:00.290
  • GOD REALLY DOESN'T WANT YOU TO BE SATISFIED.
  • 00:11:01.000 --> 00:11:04.140
  • GOD IS SOME COSMIC KILLJOY WHO'S
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:06.230
  • REALLY TRYING TO ROB YOU OF A SATISFYING LIFE.
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:10.170
  • THEREFORE YOU CAN'T FOLLOW GOD'S PLAN OR
  • 00:11:10.180 --> 00:11:13.050
  • YOU'RE GONNA END UP UNFULFILLED."
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:14.160
  • SO SATAN SAID TO EVE, "IF YOU WANT TO BE FULFILLED,
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:17.200
  • FOLLOW MY PLAN.
  • 00:11:17.210 --> 00:11:18.290
  • GO AHEAD AND EAT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:11:19.000 --> 00:11:20.290
  • OF GOOD AND EVIL."
  • 00:11:21.000 --> 00:11:23.020
  • AND OF COURSE, EVE AND ADAM FELL FOR THAT TRICK
  • 00:11:23.030 --> 00:11:26.280
  • AND THE RESULT WAS DEATH.
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:29.120
  • NOW SATAN CONTINUES THAT SAME LINE WITH US.
  • 00:11:29.130 --> 00:11:32.160
  • AND YOU AND I HAVE INHERITED FROM ADAM AND
  • 00:11:32.170 --> 00:11:35.010
  • EVE THAT NATURAL TENDENCY TO WANT TO DISOBEY GOD IN
  • 00:11:35.020 --> 00:11:39.290
  • ORDER TO MEET OUR NEEDS BECAUSE WE TOO BELIEVE
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:42.140
  • THE LIE OF SATAN, THAT IF WE FOLLOW GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:46.130
  • WE'RE GONNA BE ROBBED OF SOMETHING GREAT IN LIFE.
  • 00:11:46.140 --> 00:11:49.050
  • WE FALL FOR THE DECEIT OF THE DEVIL.
  • 00:11:49.060 --> 00:11:51.080
  • WE HAVE INHERITED THAT TENDENCY TO TRY TO
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:54.240
  • SATISFY OUR DESIRES IN OUR WAY.
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:57.050
  • SO WE'VE INHERITED THAT CORRUPT DESIRES.
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:12:00.220
  • THOSE DESIRES THAT WE TRY TO FULFILL IN OUR OWN
  • 00:12:00.230 --> 00:12:03.270
  • WAY, AND THAT SETS US UP PERFECTLY FOR THE NEXT
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:06.190
  • FACTOR IN THE TEMPTATION EQUATION,
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:09.140
  • AND THAT IS THE RIGHT BAIT.
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:12.020
  • REMEMBER WHAT JAMES SAID?
  • 00:12:12.030 --> 00:12:13.150
  • "EACH MAN IS TEMPTED WHEN HE IS CARRIED AWAY."
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:18.030
  • THAT MEANS WE'RE DRAWN BY THESE CORRUPT DESIRES.
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:20.260
  • WE'RE DRAWN TOWARDS SIN.
  • 00:12:20.270 --> 00:12:22.220
  • "EACH MAN IS TEMPTED WHEN HE IS CARRIED AWAY," AND
  • 00:12:22.230 --> 00:12:25.060
  • THE SECOND WORD IS "ENTICED."
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:27.240
  • NOW THAT REFERS TO THE RIGHT BAIT.
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:30.170
  • IN FACT, THAT WORD ENTICED IN GREEK IS A
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:32.220
  • FISHING TERM THAT MEANS LITERALLY TO HOOK A FISH.
  • 00:12:32.230 --> 00:12:36.260
  • THAT'S THE PICTURE HERE.
  • 00:12:36.270 --> 00:12:38.170
  • I HADN'T BEEN IN MY CHURCH IN WICHITA FALLS
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:41.070
  • BUT JUST A FEW MONTHS WHEN AN OLDER DEACON IN
  • 00:12:41.080 --> 00:12:44.130
  • OUR CHURCH INVITED ME TO GO FISHING WITH HIM
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:47.070
  • ONE SATURDAY MORNING.
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.040
  • HE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT KNOW ME VERY WELL.
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:51.010
  • AND SO I GOT UP AT SOME UNSEEMLY HOUR TO GO OUT
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:55.160
  • ON LAKE WICHITA WITH HIM FISHING.
  • 00:12:55.170 --> 00:12:57.200
  • AND WE SAT THERE IN THE BOAT AND I SAT THERE FOR
  • 00:12:57.210 --> 00:13:01.180
  • SEVERAL HOURS WITH MY LINE IN THE WATER.
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:04.000
  • NOT EVEN A TUG ON THE LINE.
  • 00:13:04.010 --> 00:13:07.070
  • AND I LOOKED AROUND AT MY FRIEND AND I'M--I'M NOT
  • 00:13:07.080 --> 00:13:09.240
  • EXAGGERATING, HE WAS PULLING FISH IN THE BOAT
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:11.270
  • ONE RIGHT AFTER ANOTHER.
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.160
  • I MEAN IT WAS GETTING RIDICULOUS.
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:14.260
  • I THOUGHT WE WERE GONNA SINK WITH ALL THE FISH HE
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:16.240
  • WAS CATCHING IN THAT BOAT.
  • 00:13:16.250 --> 00:13:18.210
  • AND FINALLY, OUT OF FRUSTRATION,
  • 00:13:18.220 --> 00:13:20.010
  • I SAID, "BOB, WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:23.000
  • WHAT'S THE SECRET?
  • 00:13:23.010 --> 00:13:24.010
  • WHY ARE YOU CATCHING SO MANY FISH AND I DON'T
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:26.050
  • HAVE ANY FISH?"
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.130
  • HE SAID, "PREACHER, IF YOU'RE GONNA CATCH FISH
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:29.250
  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW TWO THINGS.
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:31.190
  • NUMBER ONE, TO CATCH FISH YOU'VE GOTTA
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:33.260
  • SMELL LIKE A FISH."
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:35.250
  • HE SAID, "THIS MORNING WHEN I GOT UP I DIDN'T
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.150
  • SHOWER, SHAVE, OR PUT ON ANY DEODORANT."
  • 00:13:37.160 --> 00:13:39.230
  • 00:13:39.240 --> 00:13:43.050
  • FACTS WHICH WERE EASILY
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:44.150
  • VERIFIABLE BY MY OWN NOSE,
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:46.050
  • I MIGHT ADD.
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:48.130
  • IF YOU'RE GONNA FISH YOU GOT TO SMELL LIKE A FISH,
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:50.040
  • BUT HE SAID SECONDLY YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:13:50.050 --> 00:13:52.260
  • USE THE RIGHT BAIT.
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:55.070
  • NOT ALL FISH BITE AT THE SAME BAIT.
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:57.100
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW WHICH BAIT TO USE.
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:14:01.080
  • NOW HEAR ME THIS MORNING, WHEN JAMES IS GIVING US
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:03.260
  • THIS EQUATION FOR TEMPTATION,
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:06.050
  • HE SAYS THE WAY WE FALL INTO SIN IS BY BEING
  • 00:14:06.060 --> 00:14:08.280
  • CARRIED AWAY BY OUR INWARD DESIRES AND THEN
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:11.250
  • BY BEING HOOKED BY THE MASTER FISHERMAN SATAN.
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:15.280
  • SATAN IS A MASTER FISHERMAN.
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:18.010
  • HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT BAIT TO DANGLE
  • 00:14:18.020 --> 00:14:21.040
  • IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:14:21.050 --> 00:14:22.040
  • NO, HE'S NOT OMNISCIENT, HE CAN'T READ YOUR MIND.
  • 00:14:22.050 --> 00:14:24.100
  • BUT GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:25.050
  • HE DOESN'T HAVE TO.
  • 00:14:25.060 --> 00:14:26.190
  • ALL HE HAS TO DO IS OBSERVE YOU,
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:28.210
  • OBSERVE WHAT'S GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:14:28.220 --> 00:14:30.210
  • AND HE KNOWS WHAT LURE TO TAKE OUT
  • 00:14:30.220 --> 00:14:32.250
  • OF HIS TACKLE BOX.
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:34.250
  • PERHAPS YOU'RE GOING THROUGH A PARTICULARLY
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:36.100
  • ROCKY TIME IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:38.090
  • YOU HAVE THIS CRAVING FOR INTIMACY.
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:41.050
  • GUESS WHICH LURE HE'S GONNA DANGLE
  • 00:14:41.060 --> 00:14:42.240
  • IN FRONT OF YOU?
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:44.000
  • HE'LL BRING THAT SPECIAL SOMEBODY INTO YOUR LIFE
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:47.000
  • AT JUST THAT TIME AND TEMPT YOU TO SEEK
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:50.160
  • INTIMACY OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:53.110
  • OR MAYBE HE WATCHES YOU.
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:54.220
  • HE SEES YOU MISS THAT PROMOTION OR THAT RAISE
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:57.230
  • YOU THINK YOU DESERVED.
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:14:59.150
  • AND KNOWING YOUR NEED, YOUR CRAVING FOR
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:01.230
  • RECOGNITION, HE DANGLES IN FRONT OF YOU THE
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:04.240
  • POSSIBILITY OF A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER JOB OR ANOTHER
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:07.160
  • CITY THAT'S OUTSIDE OF GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:07.170 --> 00:15:10.250
  • OR MAYBE HE SEES THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:15:10.260 --> 00:15:11.290
  • IN FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY.
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:13.090
  • GUESS WHICH LURE HE PICKS OUT OF HIS TACKLE BOX?
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:16.090
  • HE LURES IN FRONT OF YOU THE POSSIBILITY,
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:18.130
  • THE TEMPTATION OF DISHONEST FINANCIAL GAIN.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:22.280
  • AND THEN HE HOOKS YOU.
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:24.280
  • BY THE WAY, MY FRIEND ALSO SAID NOT ONLY DO YOU
  • 00:15:24.290 --> 00:15:27.030
  • HAVE TO USE THE RIGHT BAIT,
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:28.150
  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHEN TO GO FISHING.
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:31.100
  • HE SAID, "THE REASON WE'RE NOT OUT HERE AT
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:32.200
  • NOON, OR WE DIDN'T WAIT 'TIL THE AFTERNOON IS THE
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:34.180
  • FISH DON'T BITE THEN.
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:35.160
  • THEY ONLY BITE IN THE EARLY MORNING."
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:38.130
  • AND SATAN AGAIN KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT TIME TO
  • 00:15:38.140 --> 00:15:42.110
  • DANGLE THAT RIGHT BAIT IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:45.150
  • NOW LET'S GO BACK TO THE TEMPTATION EQUATION.
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:47.270
  • FIRST OF ALL, IT BEGINS WITH CORRUPT DESIRES.
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:50.290
  • SECONDLY, IT INCLUDES THE RIGHT BAIT
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:55.020
  • THAT SATAN DANGLES IN FRONT OF US.
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:57.200
  • "EACH ONE IS TEMPTED WHEN HE IS CARRIED AWAY," THAT
  • 00:15:57.210 --> 00:16:00.050
  • IS DRAWN, "AND ENTICED," HOOKED.
  • 00:16:00.060 --> 00:16:03.000
  • BUT THE THIRD FACTOR IS A WRONG CHOICE.
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:06.190
  • A WRONG CHOICE.
  • 00:16:06.200 --> 00:16:08.130
  • NOW THE TRUTH IS, WE DON'T' HAVE ANY REAL
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:10.170
  • CHOICE OVER OUR CORRUPTED DESIRES.
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:12.210
  • WE INHERITED THOSE FROM OUR PARENTS,
  • 00:16:12.220 --> 00:16:15.120
  • ADAM AND EVE.
  • 00:16:15.130 --> 00:16:16.210
  • THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ADAM AND EVE.
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:19.070
  • SECONDLY, WE REALLY DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICE ABOUT THE
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:21.230
  • BAIT THAT SATAN DANGLES IN FRONT OF US.
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.290
  • THAT'S SOMETHING THAT HE DOES.
  • 00:16:24.000 --> 00:16:26.010
  • NOW AGAIN, WE CAN FLEE THOSE TEMPTATIONS.
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:28.240
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? EVEN IF WE COULD ISOLATE
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:30.240
  • OURSELVES FROM EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING, TEMPTATION
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:33.230
  • WOULD STILL BE THERE.
  • 00:16:33.240 --> 00:16:35.060
  • REMEMBER JESUS WAS ALONE, ALL BY HIMSELF,
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:37.290
  • IN THE DESERT WHEN THE TEMPTER CAME.
  • 00:16:38.000 --> 00:16:40.260
  • WE DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICE ABOUT THE CORRUPTED
  • 00:16:40.270 --> 00:16:42.190
  • DESIRES, WE HAVE LITTLE CONTROL OVER THE
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:44.130
  • TEMPTATION, BUT THIS THIRD FACTOR WE DO HAVE
  • 00:16:44.140 --> 00:16:47.120
  • THIRD FACTOR WE DO HAVE CONTROL OVER.
  • 00:16:47.130 --> 00:16:48.110
  • THAT IS THE CHOICE THAT WE MAKE.
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.020
  • YES, THAT BAIT THAT IS DANGLED IN FRONT OF US
  • 00:16:51.030 --> 00:16:54.210
  • LOOKS APPEALING TO US.
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.050
  • IT DRAWS US TO IT, BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:16:56.060 --> 00:16:59.090
  • BITE AT THE BAIT.
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:01.040
  • WE DO HAVE A CHOICE, AND I'M SURPRISED AT THE
  • 00:17:01.050 --> 00:17:04.120
  • NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT WE
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:06.070
  • REALLY DO HAVE A CHOICE.
  • 00:17:06.080 --> 00:17:08.240
  • INSTEAD MOST CHRISTIANS HAVE ADOPTED
  • 00:17:08.250 --> 00:17:10.160
  • A PLAYWRIGHT OSCAR WILDE'S WAY TO
  • 00:17:10.170 --> 00:17:14.040
  • DEAL WITH TEMPTATION.
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:15.010
  • HE SAID, "AFTER MANY YEARS OF STUDY,
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:17.090
  • I HAVE DETERMINED THAT THE BEST WAY TO RID
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:19.120
  • YOURSELF OF TEMPTATION IS TO YIELD TO IT."
  • 00:17:19.130 --> 00:17:24.060
  • NOW THAT'S A PRETTY FATALISTIC VIEW,
  • 00:17:24.070 --> 00:17:25.220
  • ISN'T IT?
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:26.210
  • WANT TO GET RID OF TEMPTATION?
  • 00:17:26.220 --> 00:17:27.250
  • JUST GO AHEAD AND GIVE IN TO IT.
  • 00:17:27.260 --> 00:17:29.230
  • UNFORTUNATELY, MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE ADOPTED
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:31.280
  • THAT PRACTICE AS WELL.
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:33.130
  • THEY FEEL LIKE, "WELL, I JUST DON'T
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:34.270
  • HAVE ANY CHOICE.
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:36.080
  • I HAVE TO OBEY MY SIN NATURE.
  • 00:17:36.090 --> 00:17:38.100
  • I HAVE TO BITE AT THE BAIT."
  • 00:17:38.110 --> 00:17:41.030
  • AND GOD'S WORD SAYS, "NO YOU DON'T."
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:44.220
  • YOU SEE SATAN WANTS YOU AS A CHRISTIAN TO THINK
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:46.220
  • YOU'RE STILL UNDER HIS CONTROL,
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:48.120
  • AT LEAST AS LONG AS YOU'RE ALIVE
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:49.220
  • IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:50.170
  • NO YOU'RE NOT!
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.220
  • SEE, THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT THE SAME POWER THAT
  • 00:17:51.230 --> 00:17:54.210
  • RAISED JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD IS PRESENT IN
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:57.220
  • YOUR LIFE GIVING YOU THE ABILITY TO SAY NO TO SIN.
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:18:02.110
  • AND THAT'S WHAT ROMANS 6:6-7 ARE ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:18:02.120 --> 00:18:05.120
  • LISTEN TO WHAT PAUL SAID.
  • 00:18:05.130 --> 00:18:06.180
  • "KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD SELF," THAT IS OUR
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:10.020
  • CORRUPTED DESIRES, "OUR OLD SELF WAS CRUCIFIED
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:13.120
  • WITH HIM IN ORDER THAT OUR BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.170
  • DONE AWAY WITH SO THAT WE WOULD NO LONGER
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:20.120
  • BE SLAVES TO SIN.
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:22.160
  • FOR HE WHO HAS DIED IS FREED FROM SIN."
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:27.160
  • THE MOMENT YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:29.250
  • THAT SET OF CORRUPT DESIRES YOU HAVE,
  • 00:18:29.260 --> 00:18:32.160
  • THEY ARE DEALT A DEATH BLOW.
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:35.020
  • THEY'RE NOT TOTALLY REMOVED FROM OUR BODY BUT
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:37.100
  • THEIR POWER OVER US HAS BEEN BROKEN.
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:40.140
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO SAY YES TO SIN.
  • 00:18:40.150 --> 00:18:43.140
  • SIN HAS NO MORE POWER OVER YOUR LIFE THAN YOU
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:46.230
  • CHOOSE TO ALLOW IT TO HAVE.
  • 00:18:46.240 --> 00:18:48.200
  • THAT'S WHAT PAUL IS SAYING HERE.
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:51.030
  • BY THE WAY, SPEAKING OF TRAPS,
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:52.210
  • DON'T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF THINKING THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:18:52.220 --> 00:18:55.280
  • YOU'RE TEMPTED, YOU'RE SINNING.
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:58.100
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE, A LOT OF CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:18:58.110 --> 00:19:00.020
  • EQUATE TEMPTATION WITH SIN.
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.180
  • THEY THINK BECAUSE THEY ARE TEMPTED THAT THAT
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:04.030
  • MEANS THEY'VE SINNED.
  • 00:19:04.040 --> 00:19:05.000
  • THEY THINK THE TEMPTATION ITSELF IS A SIN.
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:07.080
  • LISTEN TO ME, IF BEING TEMPTED MEANS YOU'RE A
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:09.240
  • SINNER, THEN JESUS CHRIST WAS THE GREATEST
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:12.100
  • SINNER OF ALL TIME.
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:14.150
  • BECAUSE HE FACED THE GREATEST
  • 00:19:14.160 --> 00:19:16.140
  • TEMPTATION OF ALL TIME.
  • 00:19:16.150 --> 00:19:18.290
  • BUT IT WASN'T BEING TEMPTED--OR IT WASN'T THE
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:22.200
  • ABSENCE OF TEMPTATION THAT MADE JESUS THE
  • 00:19:22.210 --> 00:19:25.210
  • PERFECT SON OF GOD.
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:26.230
  • IT WASN'T THE ABSENCE OF TEMPTATION ITSELF.
  • 00:19:26.240 --> 00:19:29.080
  • IT WAS THE ABSENCE OF YIELDING TO TEMPTATION
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:32.210
  • THAT PROVED JESUS TO BE THE SPOTLESS LAMB OF GOD.
  • 00:19:32.220 --> 00:19:35.290
  • AND IT'S THE SAME WAY IN YOUR LIFE AND MY LIFE.
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:38.070
  • LISTEN TO HEBREWS 4:15.
  • 00:19:38.080 --> 00:19:40.090
  • THE WRITER SAYS, "FOR WE DO NOT HAVE A HIGH PRIEST
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:43.070
  • WHO CANNOT SYMPATHIZE WITH OUR WEAKNESSES,
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:46.130
  • BUT ONE WHO HAS BEEN TEMPTED IN ALL THINGS AS
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:49.100
  • WE ARE AND YET WITHOUT SIN."
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:53.000
  • HE FACED THE GREATEST TEMPTATIONS ANY MAN HAS
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:55.140
  • EVER FACED BEFORE AND YET HE SAID NO.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:58.180
  • NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:20:02.190 --> 00:20:04.060
  • I CAN READ YOUR MIND RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:04.070 --> 00:20:07.030
  • YOU'RE THINKING, "WELL SURE HE SAID NO!
  • 00:20:07.040 --> 00:20:08.190
  • HE WAS THE SON OF GOD!
  • 00:20:08.200 --> 00:20:10.050
  • WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT HIM TO DO?
  • 00:20:10.060 --> 00:20:12.140
  • BUT I AM NOT THE PERFECT SON OF GOD."
  • 00:20:12.150 --> 00:20:16.050
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIBLE IS SAYING.
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:18.190
  • THE BIBLE IS SAYING THE SAME POWER THAT WORKED IN
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:22.040
  • JESUS CHRIST'S LIFE IS WORKING
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:24.190
  • IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:26.220
  • YOU HAVE THE SAME SUPERNATURAL POWER OVER
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:30.250
  • SIN THAT JESUS CHRIST HAD.
  • 00:20:30.260 --> 00:20:33.220
  • THAT'S WHAT BECOMING A CHRISTIAN IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:35.250
  • IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT A FREE TICKET TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:35.260 --> 00:20:38.160
  • IT IS ABOUT A BRAND NEW POWER THAT IS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:42.200
  • YOU REMEMBER ROMANS 6:4?
  • 00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:45.040
  • LISTEN TO WHAT PAUL SAID.
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:46.190
  • "THEREFORE WE HAVE BEEN BURIED WITH HIM THROUGH
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:49.200
  • BAPTISM INTO DEATH SO THAT AS CHRIST WAS RAISED
  • 00:20:49.210 --> 00:20:53.080
  • FROM THE DEAD THROUGH THE GLORY OF THE FATHER
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:55.160
  • SO WE TOO MIGHT WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE."
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:59.120
  • DO THOSE WORDS SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU?
  • 00:20:59.130 --> 00:21:01.290
  • THOSE ARE THE WORDS YOU HEAR ALMOST EVERY SUNDAY
  • 00:21:02.000 --> 00:21:03.210
  • NIGHT FROM THE BAPTISTERY WHEN
  • 00:21:03.220 --> 00:21:04.270
  • WE'RE BAPTIZING SOMEBODY.
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:06.170
  • BURIED WITH HIM IN BAPTISM,
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:08.090
  • RAISED TO A NEWNESS OF LIFE.
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:12.110
  • NOW I BET YOU'VE HEARD ALL OF YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:14.120
  • I KNOW I HEARD IT GROWING UP,
  • 00:21:14.130 --> 00:21:16.140
  • THAT BAPTISM IS A PICTURE OF OUR DEATH,
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:19.000
  • BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:21.190
  • THAT WHEN WE'RE LOWERED INTO THE WATER WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:23.150
  • SAYING IS, "ONE DAY MY PHYSICAL BODY IS GOING TO
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:26.030
  • DIE AND IT'S GOING TO BE BURIED AND ONE DAY I'M
  • 00:21:26.040 --> 00:21:29.030
  • GOING TO RISE FROM THE DEAD JUST LIKE JESUS DID!"
  • 00:21:29.040 --> 00:21:31.220
  • HAVEN'T YOU HEARD THAT BEFORE?
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:34.000
  • NOW THAT IS CERTAINLY TRUE,
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:35.270
  • BUT THAT IS A SECONDARY PICTURE OF WHAT BAPTISM
  • 00:21:35.280 --> 00:21:39.070
  • IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:40.180
  • BAPTISM IS NOT PRIMARILY ABOUT SOME FUTURE EVENT,
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:44.100
  • THE RESURRECTION OF OUR PHYSICAL BODIES
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:46.090
  • FROM THE GRAVE.
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:47.250
  • BAPTISM IS ABOUT OUR SPIRITUAL RESURRECTION
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:50.200
  • THAT OCCURS THE MOMENT WE'RE SAVED.
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:53.040
  • WHEN YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:21:53.050 --> 00:21:55.050
  • WHEN YOU TRUST IN CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR,
  • 00:21:55.060 --> 00:21:56.280
  • YOU ARE DYING TO YOUR OLD WAY OF LIVING,
  • 00:21:56.290 --> 00:21:59.290
  • AND YOU ARE BEING RAISED TO A BRAND
  • 00:22:00.020 --> 00:22:02.170
  • NEW WAY OF LIFE.
  • 00:22:02.180 --> 00:22:04.260
  • AND JUST LIKE MARIO SEPULVEDA,
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:06.140
  • THAT MINER SAID, "I HAVE BURIED MY OLD LIFE BACK
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:09.230
  • THERE IN THAT MINE AND I'M GONNA BECOME
  • 00:22:09.240 --> 00:22:12.170
  • A BRAND NEW PERSON."
  • 00:22:12.180 --> 00:22:14.000
  • WHEN YOU TRUST IN CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR AND WHEN
  • 00:22:14.010 --> 00:22:16.130
  • YOU'RE BAPTIZED YOU'RE SAYING TO THE WHOLE
  • 00:22:16.140 --> 00:22:18.110
  • WORLD, "I AM THROUGH WITH MY OLD WAY OF LIVING.
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:21.090
  • I AM BEING RAISED TO A BRAND NEW WAY OF LIVING.
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:25.100
  • BUT HERE IS THE GREAT NEWS.
  • 00:22:25.110 --> 00:22:27.100
  • THAT RESOLVE IS A RESOLVE THAT HAS A SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:22:27.110 --> 00:22:30.240
  • POWER BEHIND IT.
  • 00:22:30.250 --> 00:22:32.010
  • RESOLVES IN AND OF THEMSELVES DON'T
  • 00:22:32.020 --> 00:22:33.170
  • ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING, BUT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS WITH
  • 00:22:33.180 --> 00:22:36.190
  • THAT RESOLVE IS THE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:38.200
  • POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:22:38.210 --> 00:22:39.180
  • THE SAME POWER THAT LIFTED JESUS OUT OF THAT
  • 00:22:39.190 --> 00:22:42.180
  • GRAVE, THAT SAME POWER IS WORKING IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:46.170
  • RIGHT NOW TO ALLOW YOU TO SAY NO TO SIN
  • 00:22:46.180 --> 00:22:50.020
  • AND YES TO GOD.
  • 00:22:50.030 --> 00:22:52.050
  • IF YOU DON'T HEAR ANOTHER WORD I SAY TODAY,
  • 00:22:52.060 --> 00:22:53.250
  • HEAR THIS, CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:22:53.260 --> 00:22:56.070
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A CASUALTY ON
  • 00:22:56.080 --> 00:22:58.170
  • THE SPIRITUAL BATTLEFIELD.
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:23:00.170
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BECOME ANOTHER NOTCH
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:02.180
  • IN SATAN'S BELT.
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:04.120
  • YOU CAN RESIST THE DEVIL.
  • 00:23:04.130 --> 00:23:07.100
  • IN FACT, JAMES 4:7 SAYS, "RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE
  • 00:23:07.110 --> 00:23:11.020
  • WILL FLEE FROM YOU."
  • 00:23:11.030 --> 00:23:14.150
  • HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
